Description

This woodcut, printed in blacks and grays, was plate number 7 and was included in a portfolio titled 'Ten Woodcuts by Yoshijiro Urushibara' done in 1924 and published by John Lane in London. The portfolio included an introduction by Laurence Binyon. The woodcuts were cut and printed by Urushibara after watercolors by his friend and collaborator, British artist Frank Brangwyn.

Urushibara hand printed an edition of 250 plus 20 artist's proofs that were not offered for sale. He used different Japanes papers and signed 7 of the images with pencil, in the European tradition and the other 3 with his seal signature in red ink.

Brangwyn did a number of etchings in Montreuil-sur-Mer, an eastern industrial suburb of Paris, in the first decade of the 20th century. The roadways of France with the tall trees was a subject he returned to, using various media, throughout his career.
